BISH STOLE MY LOOK: CUT OUT SET

Spotted! Rapper Cardi B and model Bria Myles was seen is this very similar cut out set. Cardi B’s orange set is from B Donnas and Bria Myles white set is from Eradik Boutique. I’m going to have to go with Bria Myles, she worked this outfit better than Cardi in my opinion. Cardi’s orange hair is too much for this look and her tattoo is also a little distracting.

Thoughts?

 

RICARDO’S STEAKHOUSE

This past weekend I celebrated my friends 26th Birthday at Harlem’s “Ricardo’s Steakhouse.” I’ve been to Ricardo’s multiple times before and I always leave in total ecstasy. I decided not to be a “Regular Degular” Cardi B’s voice, and not get my usual Fettuccine Alfredo. Instead I opted for the “Ricardo’s Special Patter.” Which included a skirt steak, grilled pork chop, rice, beans, homemade mashed potatoes, and sweet plantains.

This entree was delicious and very fulling for just $26.00. I washed it down with a semi strong “Smoking Gun” for $12.00 which was made of Hennessy, orange juice, and splash of cranberry juice. I will always recommend Ricardo’s Steakhouse. I am highly pleased with the ambiance and the service, a great place for birthday dinners or a night out with Bae.

For dinner I wore a American Apparel burgundy long sleeve top, Paige denim jeans that I cut into shorts since they had a hole in them (innovative) and Public Desire thigh high peep toe boots. I accessorized my look with a chunky Aldo necklace, dollar store hoop earrings and an Urban Outfitter’s black tote.

BISH STOLE MY LOOK: DIESEL AW17 DENIM JACKET

SPOTTED! Both Tammy Rivera & Dej Loaf were seen in this Diesel AW17 denim jacket retailing at $398.00. Who do you think rocked it best ? I love how Dej Loaf was styled in this complete look. She is giving me a retro feel with her golden bob.. Tammy Rivera on the other hand looks all over the place. I hate everything about her look from the Chanel belt to the electric pink lipstick, she made this whole ensemble look very cheap. Simplicity is key!

NYFW SS18 RECAP

Another fashion week has come and gone, and I can’t be more pleased with the outcome this season. Designers bought the drama the theatrics and beautiful silhouettes. sequins

Monse Maison

Love these silhouettes at the Monse Maison show. Monse was inspired by collegiate wear and sports uniforms. Bold colors, stripes, denim

Naeem Khan

Helmut Lang

This whole collect was beautifully executed. I enjoyed the sheer silhouettes and the abstract looking bralette. This show was more like an art show than a fashion show, every look was superb.

Laquan Smith

Laquan Smith brought us back to high school with his presentation. Lots of beautiful plaid pleated skirts, thigh high boots, fishnets & camo sets.

Ralph Lauren

Normally designers would present their SS18 line but Ralph chose the See now, Buy now method. Ralph Lauren always executes classic pieces at all his shows. He debuted his Menswear FW17 collection at his own garage in Bedford, NY. Ralph give us an array of gingham suits, leather biker jackets, jacquard knit sweaters and satin slips.

Cushnie et Ocho

Frida Kahlo was the inspiration behind Cushnie et Och. Lots of slinky slip dresses, corset pieces, and airy silhouettes. Loved these peachy oranges tones.

Jeremy Scott

Always bring us something different to the runway

Brandon Maxwell

Oscar de La Renta

Fenty X Puma

Rihanna stole the show with her moto cross fused surfer, athelic gear. Her show was full of leather, cropped pieces, windbreakers, & heels flip flops. 

Adam Selman

Ulla Johnson

Assembly New York

Tom Ford 

Naeem Khan

Naeem Khan is never one for subtlety, and this season was about pumping up the volume even more on his opulent designs.

Helmut Lang

Lang is beloved for his minimalism, for making luxury items out of everyday staples, for a unisex approach to dressing, and for his fetish-y streak. You can guess which aspect Oliver was interested in. Yes, there was some attractive streamlined tailoring, and yes, again, there was a swanky black parka, and a baby pink one, as well. But what there was in abundance was kink: asymmetric bras and daring peekaboo harnesses, rearless pants suspended from the waistband like garters, leather codpieces, and strappy BDSM gear. Girls and boys both carried or wore patent bags that unzipped to create old-fashioned, hugely oversize brassieres.

FENTY BEAUTY LAUNCH 9/8/17

Rihanna is already stealing NYFW’s spotlight with her Fenty X Puma SS18 collection schedule to show this week and her new beauty line launch. Rihanna’s highly anticipated makeup line Fenty Beauty just dropped and of course, she did not disappoint.

People can’t stop raving about this “new generation of beauty.”  Rihanna was very keen on creating a makeup line that worked for all women. Rihanna’s collection includes 40 shade liquid foundations, four highlighter duos, 30 shades of stick cream that contour, blotting sheets, and one lip gloss shade. Once I saw the commercial I just knew I want the lip gloss. I always have a hard time finding a gloss the doesn’t look nude or pink on my lips. I absolutely love this lip gloss, it doesn’t go on too glossy and the applicator is very soft. This gloss also has a peachy smell and goes on super smooth. You can get Fenty Beauty at Sephora and Fenty Beauty.com.

MADE IN AMERICA 2017

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending Jay Z’s 2-day annual music festival. Since I am a loyal customer of Tidal and Sprint I received two tickets for free 99! YOU KNOW I WAS HYPED AF! This was a huge festival equipped with a Ferris wheel, photo booths, food, prizes and an endless supply of Budweiser beer. There were multiple stages and over 50 artists from different genres selected personally by Jay Z to perform.

Walking into the festival was a little overwhelming with the large crowds and arrows pointing you in the wrong direction. Not to mention how badly it was pouring. Luckily I knew there would be heavy rain so I purchased a poncho. I was elated to see my beautiful soul Sista Solange perform, pouring rain and all. She sang all my favorites songs such as “Losing You,” & “Tony”. I missed J. Cole’s performance because my friends couldn’t handle the rain which was understandable. We ended the night at a fancy Cuban restaurant called Alma de Cuba. I had the delicious “Vaca Frita,” which is a skirt steak with white rice and black beans.

In the morning we had breakfast at Denny’s then headed to the festival around 2:30. I was super thankful that it didn’t rain as much on Sunday as it did on Saturday. At the festival, I saw Tiwa Savage, Pusha T, 21 Savage, Chainsmokers and the greatest rapper of all time Jay Z perform. Mr. Carter ended the night with an 1 hour and 30 min set. After we thought he ended his set with a tribute to Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington, he surprised everyone by popping up at a completely different stage to close the night with Philly’s very own Meek Mills.

Made in America was my first festival and it was an amazing experience. I would defiantly go to this festival again. Even in the rain…..maybe not. HEHE. Take a look below to view some flicks!

TOP 4 MUST HAVES FOR FALL 2017

Autumn is one of my favorite seasons. This is the season where you can really style up your looks with layering pieces and over accessorizing. Fall is also a great excuse to pull out cool weather staples like over sized cardigans and over the knee boots. I am so ready for this change of weather!!!! Here are my 4 must have items for this fall.

ANYTHING STRIPED

Stripes were very popular during the summer and they’re a great transitional piece for the fall. We’re seeing a wide variety of stripe on stripe ensembles which I am loving. Everyone should have some stripes incorporated into their wardrobe this season, whether its bold stripes or a classic pinstripe try it out this season.

Who doesn’t want to give themselves a little lift in the height department and still remain comfortable. A cool play on sneaker wedges, platform sneakers gives us a flash of nostalgia while still being fashion forward.

FANNY PACKS

People just can’t seem to get enough of fanny packs especially since Gucci introduced their version of them. Fanny packs are very stylish depending on how you rock it. These sporty bags are super convenient if you don’t want to carry anything on your shoulders or back. This fashionable accessory looks super cute on the fellas.

CROPPED JACKETS

I have an infatuation with anything cropped…..except for jeans since they always look like high waters on me. Other than that my relationship with cropped items has been superb. Cropped jackets can bring that sexiness factor to a look and still have a masculine vibe as well.

BDG Denim Cropped Trucker Jacket $89.00
